Britney Spears in Christopher Kane

Posted on December 07, 2012

In thumbnails, this looked like a slight step forward, sartorially speaking, for Miss Brit. But the full-size photos tell another tale, unfortunately. Or rather, they tell the same old tale:

Britney Spears attends Fox’s ‘The X Factor’ viewing party in Los Angeles, California in a Christopher Kane dress paired with Miu Miu sandals.

Honestly, if it didn’t have that lace panel on the back, we would’ve considered this a win, but that’s just a bridge too far for us. If the entire dress was leather – and the bust fit her correctly – we’d love this look on her. Well, almost. She’d have to switch out the honky-tonk shoes for something a little more… we hesitate to say “elegant,” since we are talking about a leather mini on Britney Spears, but at least something a little more stylish.

And since the comments section is likely to be overrun by comments asking what it is, we’re assuming she’s having a tat removed on her ankle.
